Taking It From The Top
I wanted to start this blog so other women, family and friends could see a real perspective into the life of cancer. Not just what I am experiencing, but what others may experience or see loved ones experience themselves. I am a mom of two girls (Kaylee 10, and Sophie 4) and married for 11 years this year to my husband John Marc. We live in Rolla, MO and all of my treatments will be here at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. I was diagnosed on January 16, 2013, at 5:15 p.m. A moment in time I believe the Earth stopped turning, and my heart stopped beating. Even if it was for a split second. This blog was started January 21, 2013 at 6:22 p.m. when I was ready to speak. (and when my S.I.L. Claire was ready to help with the tech stuff:) I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. I WILL beat Breast Cancer! I did not want to turn to Google for my answers, I wanted to find my own. These are them:

Well I am tired, so today will be a short post. It started early with the editor Lynn showing up ready to start her article. I went to chemo and it wasn’t as bad as last time. This time they did some numbing lotion on it and it helped greatly. My mom came, I had some visitors and before long it was over:) yeah! Oh and my white blood cells are back to normal … so that’s more good news.
We came back later and I decided today was the day that my hair would go bye-bye. For the past few days it was majorly coming out and I knew it was time. I called my BFF Ashley and got it done once and for all. So, that’s exactly what we did. Lynn stayed so it could be part of the story too. I was nervous, but I felt like it would be leas traumatic than it falling out in huge pieces.
Just like my mastectomy, I am choosing to wait a bit to see it. I’m just not emotionally ready, and it’s best I wait till I am. Ashley also fixed my wig and it looks pretty darn cute.
Overall, not a bad day…. but I am still glad it’s behind me. My church brought us dinner, and my good friend Mary took Sophie for the day. Without all these wonderful people, I don’t think I could get through this. Heading to bed, xoxoxo
Enjoy some fun videos and pics from today :)
